I can do all things through Christ
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!" Philippians 4:13
The apostle did not mean all things absolutely —but all things which the Lord called him to do. Realizing that without Christ he could do nothing—he felt also that in His strength, he could do whatever the Lord gave him to do.
"Nothing" and "all things" agree well together in the experience of believers.
Nothing without Christ—but all things with Him.
Human nature's utmost power is insufficient in spiritual service—but Christ's grace is all-sufficient.
The true knowledge of this is the key to the apostle's paradox , "When I am weak—then am I strong!"
When I know and feel my own utter weakness—then am I strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
If we attempt a work that the Lord does not call us to do—we may entirely fail in its accomplishment. Yet for any service He assigns to us—He is ready to afford all needful strength. In proportion as we feel our weakness and trust in Him—we shall be empowered. His strength will be made perfect in our weakness.
"And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work!" 2 Corinthians 9:8
Nothing without my Savior's grace
Of good can I perform;
But "all things "—that He calls me to—
While leaning on His arm!
Back to Every Day!
